Celebrate Mother’s Day in MarbellaApril 29th 2021 | by Ginés García
Origin of Mother’s Day
This weekend Mother’s Day is celebrated in Marbella, in Spain and in many countries around the world. It is always a good time to show our love and gratitude to a mother.
As every first Sunday in May, we celebrate this important day with our mothers. Spending time together with the whole family is the best gift we can give her.
Already in ancient Greece, tribute was paid to Rhea, mother of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Three days of festivities dedicated to Cybele, Goddess of Mother Earth. Roman and Catholic traditions continued this tradition.
Date of Mother’s Day
In Spain, Mother’s Day is currently celebrated on the first Sunday in May. In this way it is linked to spring and the renewal of life. Although until 1965 the celebration of this day was on the 8th of December, a date linked to the Immaculate Conception.
